when you're saying "crashing", what exactly do you mean?.. is it the app
that crashes.. is it that your mouse/keyboard no longer works?, is your
system still running (you can ssh into it), but you can't move your mouse???

Sorry to hear this, but I use Firefox 3.0.2 daily and I don't have any
of these problems. For me works fine.
